I'm putting a JDM EJ25D into a 98 Forester, and the banjo/fluid bolt required for the power steering pump fitting is slightly larger on the JDM pump than the original USDM. The JDM engine didn't come with the fitting on the pump. As long as the PS pump works from the JDM, I'd rather leave it on and get the larger bolt/fitting.

Does anyone know the size or which vehicle might have a similar size (can get from junk yard), or where I might get one? Thanks.

Try a local aftermarket harley/custom motorcycle shop if all else fails. There are a wide variety of banjo bolts available in just about every thread.
Example:
DennisKirk.com - Search Results

As for finding the tread bring it into a hardware store and try a few metric bolts to see what threads in.

Thanks for the tip. I found out the JDM pump has a different style of fitting altogether, so I ended up swapping out the pumps. Would have been nice to buy a bolt and save a bit of time, but it all worked out.
